Valvoline launches silicate organic acid technology (SI-OAT) coolants

Valvoline Inc. (NYSE: VVV) and Haertol Chemie GmbH a European producer and supplier of premium antifreeze products and automotive services have launched new coolants specifically designed for modern engines; Valvoline Antifreeze Coolant HT-12™ Green and Valvoline Antifreeze Coolant HT-12 Pink.

“Many of today’s cars are powered by more complex, higher power density engines that operate at higher temperatures. These engines require advanced coolant chemistry,” said Dr Karolina Jablonka Technical Applications Manager, Valvoline Europe. “HT-12 Green and HT-12 Pink are approved against the latest VW and BMW coolant specifications and offer protection for up to five years or 250,000 km.”

Diego Brodoni, Vice President and General Manager, Valvoline Europe said, “Valvoline has been innovating since our beginnings in 1886. Over the years, as engine technology has evolved, Valvoline’s product range has also evolved. With the release of Valvoline HT-12 Pink and Green coolants, aftermarket customers have access to the latest patented coolant technology.”

“Valvoline HT-12 Green and HT-12 Pink are formulated with state-of-the-art silicate organic acid technology (Si-OAT), safeguarding all cooling system metals including aluminium. This prevents cylinder head pitting and provides excellent protection to the engine block cooling channels, radiator and water pump against corrosion, overheating and frost. The coolants are also formulated to prevent harm to gaskets, hoses, plastics and vehicle paint,” said Dr Marco Bergemann Managing Director, HAERTOL Chemie GmbH.

Valvoline HT-12 Green and HT-12 Pink are available in both concentrates or ready to use forms and expand Valvoline’s unique range of coolants for the independent aftermarket.
